Lindsay Lohan

Rehab for Meth

and Bipolar Disorder

8/2/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Lindsay Lohan will be treated for addiction to methamphethamine and bipolar disorder during her court ordered 90 days in rehab.

Lindsay Lohan Rehab - Bipolar
According to a source familiar with Lindsay's case, methamphetamine and opiates are her "drugs of choice".

Methamphetamine -- also known as crystal meth or simply meth -- is a highly addictive stimulant and opiates, generally, have more of a downer effect.

Morningside Recovery -- the Orange County, CA rehab LiLo is scheduled to enter -- lists opiate and methamphetamine detoxification among its specialties. As TMZ first reported, sources say Morningside was not on the list of facilities recommended by court appointed psychiatrists.

We're told Lindsay will begin her rehab stint almost immediately after getting out of Lynwood Correctional Facility.

UPDATE: Lindsay's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley says, "I have never seen any psych report concerning Ms. Lohan which references a 'bi-polar' diagnosis or an addiction to 'methamphetamine.' I think this is a total fabrication."

One important note ... it has been widely reported that Lindsay takes the prescription drug Adderall, which is an amphetamine. Experts in the field of rehab and addiction tell TMZ there is a difference between amphetamine and methamphetamine.

We're told it would not be common for a rehab facility to consider Adderall and methamphetamine the same drug.

There is a difference between meth and crystal meth. (Think coke versus crack.) It's why she doesn't look like a traditional meth head. It's all in how you ingest and administer it. She's getting her fix through a prescription

are you a F**KING IDIOT? meth and crystal meth are the SAME thing. coke and crack yes are two different BUT one in the same

BUT there is no difference to meth or crystal meth. you really dont know anything do you.

It seems like "bi-polar" is the go-to excuse lately for all sorts of bad behavior. "Not my fault. I'm BI-POLAR!"

I'm so tired of these tweaked out actresses going into "rehab" for bipolar. There is no "bipolar rehab" (I'm bipolar, I'm for sure on this). They claim bipolar, but what they really have is a drug problem they are trying to mask. I'm looking at you, Lindsay, but I am also looking at you, Catherine Zeta Jones. Oh, and I see you peeking around the corner, Demi Lovato.
